International Women in Engineering Day with Beth Milton

We’re celebrating the amazing work our female engineers are involved with across our UK projects in support of International Women in Engineering Day this week.

It’s International Women in Engineering Day on the 23rd June and throughout this week, we are showcasing some of our talented engineering women and the amazing career opportunities available within our exciting industry.

Brought to you by the Women’s Engineering Society, the theme for this year is engineering heroes and we certainly have plenty of those across Sir Robert McAlpine!

We begin with Beth Milton, Graduate Engineer working on a heritage project in London. 

In the video below, Beth shares more about her time at Nottingham University studying towards a Civil Engineering degree, what her role as graduate engineer entails including sharing advice to those considering a career in engineering.

When asked what her favourite thing about being an engineer is, Beth said:

Having the technical knowledge to solve real life problems is really rewarding. When you're faced with a challenge in the morning and you have to make decisions and do lots of problem solving to come up with a solution and by the end of the day there's a physical change on site that you've had a direct link to.
